From WMATA:

“Metro will advance major track work on sections of the Red, Blue and Green lines this weekend. On the Red Line, buses will replace trains between Fort Totten and New York Avenue as Metro installs new track, ties, insulators and provides a work zone for District of Columbia Department of Transportation bridge work near New York Avenue station. Two stations — Rhode Island Avenue and Brookland — will be closed as a result.

Customers should take note of the following service impacts:

Red Line – from 10 p.m., Friday through closing on Sunday

Free shuttle buses will replace Red Line trains between Fort Totten and New York Avenue stations.
Rhode Island Avenue and Brookland stations will be closed.
Red Line service will operate normally (regular weekend schedule) between Shady Grove and New York Avenue and between Glenmont and Fort Totten.
The last train from Glenmont will depart 27 minutes earlier than usual, at 2:10 a.m. on Friday, October 21, and Saturday, October 22, and at 11:10 p.m., on Sunday, October 23.
Customers can avoid the work area by connecting to the Green Line for travel between Gallery Place and Fort Totten.
Customers using shuttle buses should allow about 30 minutes of additional travel time.

Blue line and Green line work after the jump.

Blue Line – 10 p.m. Friday through closing on Sunday

Blue Line trains will share one track between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road stations as crews make repairs to the floating slabs underneath the rails.
Throughout the weekend, Blue Line trains will depart endpoint terminals approximately every 20 minutes.
All Blue Line customers should allow about 20 minutes of additional travel time.

Green and Yellow Lines – 10 p.m. Friday through closing on Sunday

Green Line trains will share one track between Fort Totten and Prince George’s Plaza stations as personnel conduct rail renewal work.
Yellow Line trains will operate between Huntington and Mt. Vernon Square.
Trains will operate every 16-20 minutes on each line.
Green and Yellow line customers should allow about 20 minutes of additional travel time.”
